A - Pours a reddish-orange with a two finger head. Dissipates to a light cap and a sticky lacing.
S - Brown sugar and sweet pumpkin, good medley of spices, cinnamon and cloves being the primary ones.
T - Tastes lightly of pumpkin pie with a heavy dark malt flavor. Some of the lighter pie spices, nutmeg and cinnamon, show through a bit. There is spice in the aftertaste, but you feel it more than you taste it.
M - Medium body and carbonation, slightly syrupy.
O - Not a huge amount of pumpkin flavor, but still a really good beer. A darker feel to it than most pumpkin ales I have had. It does need heavier pumpkin and a touch more spice as well in the flavor. Overall a good beer, worth trying, but I would probably swing for a cheaper pumpkin ale that tastes just as good.

2013 Bottle, poured into a pint glass
A- Pours a clear dark copper color with a small creamy off-white head that retains nicely, leaving some short lasting lace behind
S- Lots of pumpkin spice aroma up front, consisting of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also picking up a vanilla cream aroma that mixes nicely with the raw pumpkin, giving it a pumpkin pie-like aroma
T- Big and malty with lots of caramel malt, mixing in with some sweet bread and fig. Pumpkin flavors kick in mid-palate, with an emphasis on the nutmeg and a cinnamon linger. Lots of malt continues through to the finish with more bread notes on the linger with a bit of alcohol
M- Heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel, ending with a smooth and foamy finish, just a bit of alcohol warmth at the end
O- One of the more malty pumpkin beers that I've tried and I think it works well. The pumpkin flavors and the sweetness of the caramel malt work nicely together, well done
